by Kumar, Uga and Kataoka
This atlas has been prepared with an aim to provide a guide to the students of medical sciences and to newly qualified medical practitioners in diagnosing the parasitic diseases. In this atlas, a total of 167 photographs of more than 50 parasites of medical importance and some of the related clinical manifestations have been included. The parasites have been grouped as intestinal and urogenital, and blood and tissue parasites. Parasites like Echinococcus, Toxocara, Anisakis, Gnathostoma, and Spirometra are kept in the group of blood and tissue parasite as they are found in tissues in human. In addition, some of the ectoparasites have also been included. Brief recapitulatory introduction of parasite and respective caption for each of the photograph used have been given on the left. Scanning electron microscopic photographs of some of the parasites have also been included so as to provide an impression about the ultrafine surface structure of the parasites.
